Tell us about your personal style?
I'd like to think of it as memorable minimalist/preppy-meets-eclectic. I like to accessorize even the plainest of outfits with statement pieces from rings to necklaces.

How do you usually put together your outfit for the day?
It all depends what i have in store for the day. If I know my day will entail a lot of walking, then I will be in practical flats.

How do you make sure your look is not over-the top?
OTT for me is wearing something that will restrict me from my duties as a mom. Say, if I know I have to run after my daughter in the park, then I'll better be not in short skirts and platforms. It's all about appropriateness, at the end of the day.

Where do you usually shop?
Local: Faith Hope Love, The Ramp, Possibilty, Azucar
Foreign: Zara, H&M

What are your closet staples?
Striped tees, chambray button downs, linen shorts

Are you more of a shoe or bag person?
Bag person, definitely.

What's on your summer list?
I'm on the lookout for palazzo pants in an eye-popping hue; a black and white maillot, and a wide brimmed hat.

What gift would you love to receive on Mother's Day?
A Celine Boston tote! A beach escapade! No, really just a full day with my husband and daughter is enough.

Tell us about your outfit, what do you like most about it and where will you wear it?
I wore this one on a date with Mischka. Every week I allot a day just for her, or at least an activity with her. That day we went to the park and to the grocery after. My pleated maxi skirt is on heavy rotation at the moment. I wear it with almost anything.

Mikka wore a striped tee from Faith Hope Love, a pleated maxi bought abroad paired with her husband's leather belt, a Kathy Webb ring, Gucci handbag and sandals from Cole Vintage.
